Featured image: Oysters @ Whalesbone We went to Whalesbone the other night, to celebrate one of our friend’s birthday.

Life is full of wonderful surprises. In the midst of my birthday week, my friend happened to need to give away a reservation at Atelier last minute. This restaurant has been on my list of restaurants to check out in Ottawa for a while now and I was more than happy to take over the reservation.

It was a smooth ride to Toronto's airport only to find that the… Continue reading Asia Day 1: Ottawa – Toronto – Hong Kong

I wanted to milk every minute of my time in Vancouver so I went on another food adventure with my Favourite Fellow Foodies (AKA FFF’s) before I had to leave. This time, we decided to be a little fancier and had lunch at Homer St. Cafe in Yaletown. Situated in a historic building, it really had… Continue reading Yummy (pork) belly in my belly!
